Life Sciences Program

College of Arts & Sciences

The UW Life Sciences Program is not a degree program.  We provide a series of 1000-3000-level courses for all life science majors and non-sciences majors.

Life Curriculum


Life Sciences courses introduce students to the fields of cell and molecular biology, genetics, ecology, and evolution, and provide a general overview of the diversity of life on the planet. Our courses offer a cutting-edge view of biology and biological research, which are taught by some of the most respected teachers at UW.

"I feel like science is a bigger part of my life now. It has helped me in my daily life by understanding the importance of the natural resources we have, and it has helped me to have a better understanding of taking initiative in doing research on science-and to realize that sciences is actually all around me."                  -UW Undergraduate

Our Goal for Students:

Courses within the curriculum address four fundamental goals at a level appropriate for each course:
